Ah-ta what the hell?

KGBX canned Woody P. Snow. He was just about the only thing on local morning radio worth listening to.

Come on Clear Channel! What were you thinking? Oh, I know. You want me to go listen to generic nationwide syndicated shows instead of local ones that appeal to the community. scumbags.

He does have his followers and has made quite a name for himself over the years.
Maybe he failed another piss test -LMAO.

To the first person who has it all figured out, that's like saying NBC got rid of Tom Dye bc they want you to get your weather from the Today Show. Clear Channel is made up of markets just like this one. If you knew anything about business...well, you wouldn't be ranting on Topix. People that love Woody & say they'll never listen to KGBX ever again, will all hit their KGBX preset and be back in a month. We know more about you than you do, you can rant on Topix all you want to try and make your point, but my point will be made when your dial is set back to KGBX by summer. Let the people who know what they're talking about do their jobs, you just keep being a good little pawn and do as we say.

Don't miss Woody P. a bit...he was a pompous, arrogant blowhard. I always miss Janet when she's not there!

I always enjoyed my morning ride to work listening to Woody and Janet...this is so sad for me. Woody told it like it is with a Christian opinion..now KGBX is going to be like any other station..I will be switching stations.

Woody was always there, Janet seldom, plus she always sounds like a dimwit.I will be searching the airways for a new talk show. Woody, you're already missed.

Clear channel you don't know squat! We liked Woody and Janet just the way they were, NOT the way you wanted to make them pre-recorded crap. I turned my dial Monday morning & will NOT turn it back unless it is Woody back on the air. I went to KOSP for morning show. YOU don't know more about us than we know about ourselves, your a new to the area, corporate minded waterhead who just see's dollar signs flash before your eyes. I hope those dollars get much smaller as you lose advertiser's also. YOU want me to be a "good little pawn", you can kiss where the sun don't shine if you think I will be your pawn, you sound just like the government is becoming. Woody might make political statements, but he was usually spot on correct & just told it like it was. You clear channel are the scum at the bottom of the pond!

Dear Pawn,
Don't worry, our dollar signs aren't going anywhere, and neither are our 237million monthly listeners. In regards to advertising, why do you think we did this? It's not even been a week & we've already had an increase in people streaming KGBX. Do yourself a favor and quit embarrassing yourself on here, and if you've got something to say, put your name on it.

I feel sorry for everyone who feels they need to judge...whether it's listeners or Clear Channel. Clear Channel lost me a long time ago because of all the repeats through the day. I always listened to Woody & Janet in the morning then switched over to Star 92.9 where you don't have to hear the same song 4 times in one day while you're at work. Woody may have been opinionated but who isn't. I beleive he had a heart of Gold and so does Janet. I will miss you Janet as I have made the morning switch now to Star 92.9

Woody was a lot more funny when he worked for a certain smaller station years ago and was coked out all the time. Actually, he was hilarious then. Subsequently he left to be a "big time" dj, mocking the ozarks before he left. After moving away, and failing, he returned to the ozarks and picked up Janet. Fast fwd to now.

I canned Clear Channel about six months ago. Working way too much toward national syndication stuff. If gave a crap about Ryan Seacrest, I'd watch him on tv, but I don't. I do miss listening to Kevin and Liz in the mornings, but I'm sure it won't be long until they screw with that too.

Woody is old, end of story. They canned him because he couldn't operate any of the equipment anymore, allegedly, due to his increasing dementia.

It's sad, but it happens. Janet might be on KY3 soon.

Woody is very talented and will have a phenomenal future. Business is business and apparently CC knows a little bit about it since they're worldwide, imo.

The fact that you are calling the Kgbx fans pawns is enough for me to move and never come back, what attitude you have! There are plenty of other stations to listen to or I can just play my IPod. Really, who needs Clear Channel?

Clear Channel, if money is your only barometer of success then congratulations! You have a mogul conglomerate that works because the power stations support the less powerful...not because you make great decisions market to market. I DO know the industry and my family has put up with your egotistical station rapes and steam rolled choices that have nothing to do with local interests. This isn't about Woody, it was about a chemistry between two people that the local consumption enjoyed which is why they were number one here before you ever got involved. Did I agree with everything that Woody said or did? No, but the banter between him and Janet was special. You guys never consider that because it is your goal to produce a product that is never bound by a personality...it's all about machines now. Sorry, I'm machined to death already. It takes far more brilliance to recognize chemistry than it does to mold every station coast to coast in the same form when we can't even agree on politics. Be different for a change. Don't be so predictable. As several people said above, I'm done and had started making the complaints back when you started sucking away the personality for more stupid airhead tunes. Woody will be fine. Some station will suck him up soon. As for you guys, it will only be a short time before the personalities will be gone altogether. GOOD CALL! Brother....(btw, my name is attached, where is yours?)

Dear "Clear Channel",

You have quite a bit to say to those of us who miss Woody...You tell us to put our name one it, here is mine. Where is yours? Or will you contine to hide behind "Clear Channel". Your talk is big but everything else seems quite small and cowardly. If you aren't big enough to reply with your name, don't reply at all.

Hmmmmmmmmmm, you judge those that make a post on TOPIX, yet you do the same. And you just aren't as smart as you think you are. I PROMISE I will not listen to a Clear Channel Station as long as I live. I will go to Satellite Radio, and make sure YOU have nothing to do with what I might want to listen!

I will listen to the morning show one more time to make a list of the sponsors. Then I will write to all of those sponsors to let them know I will no longer support their products. Clear Channel, the Woody & Janet show was the ONLY time I listened to your channel so it's no problem to push the button that I already used for the rest of the day. It's obvious from your comments that you don't give a rat's behind for or have any respect for the local listeners so I'm sure you won't miss me and my money.
